On Thursday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) made a huge announcement that could change the course of the U.S. Senate and California politics for the rest of the decade.

The congressman, who made a name for himself popularizing the debunked Russia collusion narrative to go after former President Trump, has announced that he will be running for Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) Senate seat in 2024.

Sen. Feinstein, who is now 89-years-old, is unlikely to try to run for reelection given that many within her inner circle have expressed concern over her mental faculties in recent years, as previously reported by the DC Enquirer.

Schiff is entering a now contested race for the Democrat nomination with Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) also announcing her run for the position earlier this month, as reported by the New York Times.

The California Democrat has been in the headlines in recent weeks after Speaker of the House Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) booted him from the House Intelligence Committee for using his position as Chairman during the latter half of the Trump presidency to push a false narrative on the American people.

McCarthy explained to reporters on Tuesday his reasoning for kicking the two-decade congressional veteran off of the committee: “Those voters elected Schiff even though he lied. Those voters elected Swalwell even though he lied to the American public too. … I’ll respect his voters too and they’ll serve on committees, but they will not serve on a place that has national security because integrity matters to me.”

While Schiff’s political future is now up in the air given the contested election, he will certainly continue his tirades against President Trump. On Wednesday, Schiff took to Twitter to blast the former president on news that his accounts have been reinstated on Facebook and Instagram, as previously reported by the DC Enquirer.

“Trump incited an insurrection. And tried to stop the peaceful transfer of power,” Schiff claimed. “He’s shown no remorse. No contrition. Giving him back access to a social media platform to spread his lies and demagoguery is dangerous. [Facebook] caved, giving him a platform to do more harm.”

As Adam Schiff takes yet another step to increase his power, California voters will hopefully remember the many lies and false narratives that he pushed in an effort to impeach and slander President Trump.
